Fabulous aromas of crushed strawberry, flowers and light dried porcini. Full-bodied, with ripe fruit and a pruny undertone. Round and caressing.
...fabulously fresh aromas, plummy and spicy and redolent of roses, violets, graphite, and road tar, give way to a super-concentrated palate, massive and packed, dense and intense in texture and continuity.
Red berries, dried flowers and exotic suggestions of apricot and pineapple. Then very tightly wound and ungiving; comes across as drier and less fleshy today than the bottled Cascina Francia, which is more elegant and shows sweeter tannins.
